Importance of Levity for Addicts
Even in our darkest times, days and life events I think it is important to find some levity around the world you find yourself living in. Often times I’ve recommended comedies or easy to watch movies but I’m also keenly aware that they often include triggers so be careful.
Finding ways to keep context around you by experiencing nature has always been my go to for this kind of thing. But, find whatever works for you. Explore that, make it something that you can call your own. Your rehab and recovery doesn’t always have to be 100% serious all of the time.
